Champions League Matches Tuesday 20th October

Dynamo Kyiv v Juventus –  5.30pm

Andrea Pirlo will take charge of his first Champions League match tonight as the head coach of Juventus as they travel to Ukranian capital to face Dynamo Kyiv.

Juventus are currently unbeaten in Seria A but have had 2 draws in there to start the season which sets them a bit down the table at fifth currently. The legendary Ronaldo will be absent from tonight’s big match which isn’t ideal for the Italian side.

Kyiv have had a great start to the season going unbeaten and currently sitting at the top of the table. They have had great success with new manager Mircea Lucescu who took over back in July.

Kyiv breezed through the playoff after beating Gent 5-1. Tonight’s match certainly has the potential for an upset.

Zenit St Petersburg v Club Brugge – 5.45pm

Zenit is now halfway through their season in Russia and has had a great start currently sitting at the top of the table ahead of Spartak Moscow on goal difference.

Zenit made some good signings over the summer which should help propel them forward in the tournament although they do have some tough teams to face such as Lazio and Borussia Dortmund in the group.

Club Brugge will be looking to get further than last year and qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League. Brugge has some great pace up front as they have shown in the past so certainly wouldn’t rule them out giving Zenit a good game tonight.

PSG V Man Utd – 7pm

This is certainly one of the most exciting matches for tonight with the legendary Man Utd travelling over to Parc des Princes to face last years runner up.

PSG have not had a great year when it comes to player transfer losing some key players to last years efforts with free transfers such as Thomas Meunier, Thiago Silva, Edinson Cavani and Eric Choupo-Moting. The Paris side will have superstars Mbappe and Neymar who can cause mayhem for the Manchester team.

Man Utd has had their troubles recently but will be in good spirits after their recent 4-1 win against Newcastle. Certainly not a team to underestimate given the last visit the Manchester side had to this ground.

Chelsea v Sevilla – 7.15pm

Chelsea has had a team overhaul since Frank Lampard has taken control with a lot of transfers happening at the club. The results have been hot and cold as the team as the new superstars try gel together. The London side will face Sevilla at Stamford Bridge tonight.

Chelsea has had some defence issues which has been their downfall so far but with the quality of players they have the blues will be expected to do well in the tournament.

Sevilla had started well in La Liga with some good wins and a draw against the famous Barcelona which will have inspired confidence but after losing to Granada at the weekend this might be lost coming into tonight match.

Sevilla has won the Europa League 5 times in the past so they can perform on the big stage and given Chelsea’s defence issues this could certainly be an entertaining match.

Lazio v Borussia Dortmund – 7.45pm

Borussia Dortmund will travel to Stadio Olimpico to face the Italian side tonight in their first round of the group stages. Lazio has struggled recently winning only 1 of their last 4 matches and conceding 8 goals along the way which doesn’t inspire a great deal of confidence for the Italians.

Lazio’s famed striker Ciro Immobile who has a very impressive 103 goals for the club has only scored once to start the season but that could all change tonight given his previous performances.

Dortmund has had a fairly good start to the season gaining 9 points in their 4 games played although an unexpected loss to Augsburg early on seen them wobble. Borussia will be coming into tonight’s match with superstars Haaland and Sancho who could give Lazio a lot of trouble in tonight’s match.

RB Leipzig v Istanbul Basaksehir – 7.45pm

Istanbul will head over to Germany tonight to face the unbeaten RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena. RB Leipzig has come out the gates flying in the Bundesliga with 3 wins and 1 draw to start the season.

The German side is certainly one to look out for as the tournament progresses given their quarter-final effort last year. The club is in great form and will be looking to keep moving forward.

Istanbul Basaksehir will be making their first appearance in Champions League group stages which will certainly draw some nerves out for the team. The Turkish side has not had a great season so far and currently sit around the relegation zone which does not inspire confidence.

Rennes v Krasnodar – 7.45pm

Krasnodar will head over to France to face the unbeaten side at Roazhon Park tonight. Rennes have had a very impressive start to the season so far going 7 games unbeaten so far.

Rennes are one of only two teams in the French League to go unbeaten at the moment which will inspire a great amount of confidence. The team has a lot of young talent including midfielder Eduardo Camavinga who at 17 has already won 3 caps for France.

Russian side Krasnodar had a good season last year finishing 3rd in the league and will be looking to carry on some good form this year where they currently sit 7th. The Russians haven’t had the best start but certainly room to improve with some good results in the group stages.

Barcelona v Ferencvaros – 8pm

Ferencvaros will head over Spain to face the 2015 champions at the Noucamp. Barcelona has certainly had their issues recently with the world superstar Lionel Messi potentially leaving earlier in the year due to disagreements at the club.

Barcelona hasn’t had a great start to the season so far with a loss to Getafe recently but as always will be looking to perform tonight against the visitors and hard to see an upset happening.

The Hungarian visitors have been playing well in their own league and currently sit at the top after going undefeated so far. This is a really tough game for Ferencvaros but the team will have some confidence given Barcelona recent start.
